More from London




I have fallen in love with the shape of these trees! I wonder if they are trimmed like that, or if they grow that way naturally?





I assume this is Buckingham Palace?

Once again, I wish I knew exactly what we're looking at. Miss kenju was home last weekend, but I didn't have time to corral her for a lesson.

Never enough London. These are lovely pictures.

I suspect they are yew trees and would have been shaped that way as they grew. I now of no tree in Britain that naturally grows that shape :)

I do believe that is the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. And *pout* I missed you on your last trip here.

The Blossom has some excellent food. Our former hostesses son is one of the chefs there and one of our servers also works at Tidewater.

I remember having lunch at The Diamond. Loved the story about the emerald dress.

I loved London when I visited there many years ago. Yes, I do believe that is Buckingham Palace.

I LOVED your post about the green dress. I can just see you in it.

I love these London pics.

Those trees are great! Surely that have to be shaped like that.

Am I being too literal? But from the top:

- the kind of sign most local councils put up around their boundaries (bits of Hampton are in the London Borough of Richmond on Thames)
- "living statue" entertainers by the London Eye
- the yews are at Hampton Court Palace
- and the bottom three are indeed BP

The living statues are so great! I wonder how it is to be one.

Granny Annie said...

More great pictures Judy. Do you think Autolycus is correct about the statues being living statues? Are those real people?

well, the London pics are wonderful, but that hydrangea (sp?_ pic at the top is what took my breath away today....
